Ritchie delighted by goal

Bournemouth einger Matt Ritchie believes his goal in the 2-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday was one of his best goals he has scored in his career.

The 26-year old scored the second for the Cherries with an absolute screamer from 25-yards out that sparked wild scenes at the Vitality Stadium.

The goal was Ritchie's first of the season and secured Bournemouth's first home win in the Premier league this season.

"I got a good first touch, luckily I hit it sweet and it nestled in the top corner," The Scottish international told BBC Radio.

"I'm very pleased to score the goal today, but I think the three points and the performance was most important."

Eddie Howe made five changes to a squad that lost 3-1 to Norwich the previous week and Ritchie is delighted by the players who made an impact.

"It shows how strong our squad is, we had a couple of injuries which obviously played a part, but we got a reaction from last week that we needed."

Ritchie, who joined Bournemouth from Swindon Town in 2013 for £400,000 scored 15 league goals as they won the Championship last season.
